Bootfitter in Ogden [beginner moved from U.S. southeast]

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

I recently moved to Ogden, UT.  I'm from the southeast and am still new to skiing, having skiied about 5 days last year as the extent of my lifetime skiing.  In that short time, and along with much advice I came to understand how important a proper fitting boot is to skiing.

 

Is there anyone in particular I should be looking for in Ogden to get fit?  It seems like Alpine sports is really the only place around here that does it, is that right and are they a good spot?  If so, anyone in particular I should ask for?

Don't know anything about Ogden but can recommend Steve Bagley in Snowbird.

There are a lot of good fitters in the area.  But it might be best to figure out where you'll mostly want to ski for the first 5-10 days in case there are issues so you can if necessary stop in during a ski day.  Once you know that you can get suggestions.  I can recommend in Park City or Little Cottonwood, just having done the research myself, but out of Ogden maybe you'll typically ski Powder Mountain or Snowbasin.  Can't help you there.

Yeah, I've already purchased a season pass for Snowbasin.  It's about 20 minutes from our front door so hard to pass that up!

Alpine Sports is good. Ask for Jeff Montague.

I will 2nd Jeff at Alpine sports, he has a good reputation.  Josh M. at Diamond Peak in Eden is who I use, he is Masterfit certified & does a great job.

If you don't mind the trek to Park City, I recommend Brent Amsbury at Park City Ski Boot

+1  It is well worth a trip to Park City to see Brent, one of the top fitters in the country according to one of the ski mags last year.  He's worked on my boots and did a great job.  Be sure to call and make an appointment first though, but that really applies to any fitter.

I have a friend who 2nds the opinion of Josh at Diamond Peak. I feel it is always good to get the work done close to your home mountain if at all possible, so you can stop at the end of a ski day (or the middle, if it's really bad!) and get tweaks and fixes done while it's all still fresh in your mind.

 

We are hoping to move to the area next summer, BTW :D Where did you end up settling, if I may ask?
